Where To Watch Munster Vs Ulster? TV Details For Saturday's Pro12 Fixture

There are just three weeks left in the regular season of the Guinness Pro12, with the identity of the four semi-finalists becoming increasingly clear. Leinster and Munster look assured of semi-final places, with a three-way shootout for the remaining two places: the incumbents are Ospreys and Scarlets; the challengers Ulster.

The latter lie in fifth with 63 points, level with Scarlets and two points off the Ospreys. Ulster face a difficult run-in: after Saturday's trip to Thomond they face a critical away game with Ospreys, before rounding off the regular season at home to Leinster.

With Ospreys and Scarlets facing off on the final day, there is a definite opportunity for Les Kiss' side to sneak into the playoffs, but they may need a decent result at Thomond. So if you are wondering where to watch Munster Vs Ulster, read on...

Any injury concerns?

Beginning with Munster: Yes. There are injuries, although given Munster's position in the table, the concerns are more concentrated around the Champions Cup semi-final against Saracens. CJ Stander and Conor Murray will both miss this weekend's game, and are in a race to be fit for the semi-final with Saracens. James Cronin is out this weekend, too, as are Tyler Blyendaal and Donnacha Ryan, who are undergoing return to play protocols. Ian Keatley should be back, however.

For Ulster, Jared Payne will be absent having limped out of last week's 24-24 draw with Cardiff, although they will have Chris Henry available after a shoulder injury.

How did the last meeting between the sides turn out?

The sides last met at Ravenhill in October, with Munster recovering from a 14-5 deficit at half-time to win 15-14, with Rory Scannell slotting a 74th-minute drop goal to seal a dramatic victory.
